“Jack & Yaya” (2018) A documentary film

A few months back a friend shared a Craigslist post with me, it basically said we are looking for an editor that knows what he or she is doing and needs to be gay/trans friendly. Having almost finished my documentary and having learned so much from it (especially in the post-production phase) I decided to give...

How I went from directing fiction to documentaries

It’s my father’s fault, I’ve been in love with movies since I was a little kid because of him. He raved about so many movies constantly, quoting dialogues, and telling the same stories of how and when he took my mom to see the great films of the lates 70’s and early 80’s, I would...

Aaaand we’re back to posting here!

So fatherhood cuts your time in less than half, who knew! I have a brand new life filled with endless love, endless nights (when she wakes up 6 times), and the endless pursuit of getting shit done when it comes to my work. I made the huge decision to work from home until my little...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 9

Before you start reading please bear with me, we just had a beautiful baby girl and I haven’t slept much, so if I stop making sense or repeat myself, you’ll know what’s up. It has been the greatest time ever, I now have a family of my own. Crazy. We are currently locking in shooting...

Making it funny. That’s what this is all about. This is the story of a woman that wants to make you laugh, wants to make you have a good time and in her words, “make you forget about your shitty life for a while”. A lot is said about the New York audience during the documentary,...

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 6

“Be like water my friend” has to be one of my favorite quotes, it comes from the great late Bruce Lee, it refers to our ever-changing world and how we must try to adapt quickly and try to have a good time while doing so. This quote lives with me every single day. I’m still struggling...

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! Ok, I got that out of the way. Sorry. I’m in between of being very excited about the film, tired from all the hours I put into my work and thinking about being a new father in April, all the same time.

“Funny Pains” documentary: Post-production Vol. 4

“Fresh eyes” is the name of this past week. I stepped away from the editing station to shake off any tunnel vision I might have had during this process (after some great advice from my brother in arms, Princeton), it’s served me good because I immediately was able to point out spots in the doc...
